Pumpkin & Gourd Tic Tac Toe

I thought it would be fun to put together an easy game for my kids to play while they were enjoying their baked apple chips. I was browsing the aisle of my local craft store and found this wooden activity board. I thought it would make a great tic tac toe board so I picked up some supplies to make it fall worthy. Here is what you’ll need!

Pumpkin & Gourd Tic Tac Toe


  • Wooden Activity Board
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Assorted pumpkins & gourds
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun


  1. Paint your wooden board on all sides and let dry completely. I found this wood board specifically at Michael's and chose a metallic brown paint.
  2. Once I painted my board I decided to add some festive ribbon. Cut your ribbon to size and glue the ends to the back.
  3. Lay out your pumpkins & gourds and play some tic tac toe


About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
